post people who were robbed of the presidency
had this man not been shot by his own bodyguards, his America would have been a sight to behold
>Every Man a King would have ended the Depression
>his race relations would have been ahead of it's time, had mad credit with black Americans
>cared about education and infrastructure
>would probably have steered out of WWII
Huey Long should have been president.
More like, get off a /his/ board, guy was Roosevelt's rival and quite prominent in American politics in the time. Most of our election techniques come from him & in ways he's also a proto-Trump
So with the collective military history here I pose a question that has been debated for 1000s of years.
Are good Generals/military leaders born, or made?
What is this stupid question ?
They're made. They're educated to become soldiers, or learn through experience.
Napoléon Bonaparte is a product of his time. He studied everything he knew at Brienne, and managed to build a military system where talented and dashing marshalls won battles and campaigned for him. Napoléon was able to do a lot of things thanks to his personality and personnal ambition, but every technicity about warfare, he had to read it.
Studied all the classics available to him.
You can be born a genius, but if you don't have the training and education, you'll be mediocre at best.
Rommel stands as a testament to that, despite his sterling reputation. I like the guy, but seriously, he never fucking understood logistics.
>islamic golden age
Alright everybody, fill in the blanks.
mfw plutocrats still arguing about their socialism and capitalism bullshit
>communist fairytale spewers
What was the objective problem with slavery, excluding all kinds of muh feelings arguments and moralist crap? Certainly slavers wouldn't care about such shit enough to abandon their practices.
Its less efficient than self-motivated labour, it leads to slave revolts, and it causes social instability when it takes all the jobs from the free population. It also means your nation is permanently occupied by a hostile population who hates you, and this can be exploited by foreign enemies
> It causes social instability when it takes all the jobs from the free population
Why do you even need to work if slaves do everything for you? Makes no sense. Even if you emancipate slaves it isn't like they would stop working to create new jobs for you, right?
Why are people drawn to esoteric forms of religion? (Kabbalah, Gnosticism, Sufism etc.)
I personally think it's because esoteric forms of religion tend to be (generally) more lax on otherwise strict laws in any given religion.
And they offer interesting, sometimes edgy, worldviews for people to commit to and "expand their minds".
Hey /his/ what can you tell me about the Hittites? I just learned of Kikkuli's hyper-advanced horse-conditioning regimen, with details such as slow-twitch muscles being selected for, and a folksy knowledge of electrolytes and how to replace them. Can anyone tell me more about these fascinating people? In my uninformed mind I have a hard time differentiating them from the Assyrians.
And roth- means "thing that spins" as in rotate. But that's if I'm not mistaken they speak a language not far removed from proto indo-European. Things like mother, father, tree, water, shit, etc. Are not likely to change much, as they might be cultural universals. Notice how most children's first phoneme is usually (when calling out to their mother) 'ma' around which which most indo-European words for "mother" are based.
But that's neither here nor there.
Thoughts on this man? Didn't know whether I should post here or on /lit/, but I would consider him historically significant. Pic related.
Deluded wannabe samurai warrior. Created a paramilitary group as an elaborate ploy to commit suicide. Basically a tumblr-tier retard who wanted to go out with a bang because no one read his drivel.
Influential only to weaboo web-Nazis.
Were Mexicans considered "white" or "colored"?, What about Chinamen and Indians?
He was actually pretty based
CSA wanted to turn America into an English spesking Brazil
CSA was the most idiotic thing. Practically none of the seceding states held any referendum, and the couple that did had massive, MASSIVE voter intimidation. The CSA had to draft like crazy just to fight, because few wanted to fight that ridiculous war waged purely for slave owners (who were a tiny fraction of the Southern population), and the North didn't have to follow suit to keep up until years later, which would be the first time in history the U.S. used the draft.
Abraham Lincoln was absolutely based. Shame his family didn't blossom into a dynasty.
Would anyone have any good suggestions for books on the European colonization of the Americas?
Marc Lescarbot was among French refugees fleeing the French king's harsh hand against Protestants. I read it cover to cover, and after reading in-between the lines of the him desperately trying to convince the king to support colonies in the New World and his own personal interest in the New World itself.
There are others but this one should take you some time
